    Default What are the best drill bits

    I use the Walter SST bits, they're the best bits I've used in my 28 years.

    Carbide-tipped bits are generally the most expensive but they are supposed to stay sharper the longest, more so than the titanium H.S.S and the others.

    The drill itself isn't the most important part. Knowing how to keep them sharp and how to use them properly is the trick!
